To the Editor:
Every decision made about schools today will affect our economic prosperity in the future. Currently, St. Paul is making too many decisions for our schools and doesn’t trust our local school officials enough. That needs to change.
As an experienced former school teacher, Ron Kresha is a strong supporter of improving our education efforts. This includes public, private, charter, online and home schooling. Our country is growing and changing and future generations need to be well-educated and ready to tackle the very tough challenges ahead. The best way to improve our children’s education is to support the local decisions of parents, teachers, school boards and school administrators. The people who are the closest to the students are able to make the best decisions — starting with the parents.
Kresha believes we need to support programs that continue to bring our best teachers forward, improve local schools (public and private), home school resources, charter schools and take advantage of emerging online capabilities. We are a country with great solutions — we can improve our children’s educational opportunities.
We expect responsibility from our leaders in St. Paul. As our representative, Ron Kresha will listen and keep us informed on the decisions being made. — Kate Festler, Little Falls
